I may offer, toward Stephen's original question, an observation that the paper in PLOS was written by Europeans, and at least one coauthor is a Russian.
In a long Russian ecological tradition, where I come from as well,.we normally use quaint foreign words -- such as UBIKVIST, MEZOFIL, KOSMOPOLIT, ENDEMIK, etc. as nouns.
Using the term without an English article ("as ubiquist") is a very common Russian error. (Russian language does not have articles.)
Not big deal, of course, but that is what editors are for.
